I love this! ♥ A smile is the best makeup. Use your smile to change the world. Don’t let the world change your smile.

July 3 is Compliment Your Mirror Day. Find a mirror. Take a look in it. Smile your biggest smile and compliment the person that you see!

Affirmations are a great way to change your way of thinking, develop a strong mindset, stay focused on your goals, believe in your abilities and get motivated to achieve more. Your self-worth meter increases to improve your own well-being.

The children in our program say daily affirmations. Prior to entering our care, the children would experience, hear and/or see many hurtful activities that tore down their personality and self-confidence. This is why we implemented daily prayer and therapy sessions. I see so many smiling pictures of our children, it’s hard to believe they have their down days, but they do. We teach them that’s normal. We ask their focus turn to forgive those who have harmed them in their past and peacefully detach from them. Then we guide them into a daily focus on the great things about themselves and what makes them amazing.

We all could learn to love ourselves a bit more as sometimes we just don’t feel at our best, and in fact for some that ‘sometimes’ is every day. When we verbally affirm our dreams and ambitions, we are instantly empowered with a deep sense of reassurance that our wishful words will become reality.

Alright, are you ready for a 30 day mirror challenge?

Show yourself a little love and remind yourself just how awesome you are. Then keep doing it day after day! Starting today, right now in fact. Find a mirror and say I am beautiful inside and out. Seeing yourself in front of the mirror will have a great effect on you. READY?! Smile, be proud and confident, and make sure to say it like you mean it!
